'I chose to change careers and train with Bransgore and it is the best decision I ever made. The team are really supportive and there for you every step of the way, motivating and encouraging you the whole time. Training sessions and lessons with staff from partner schools are of the highest quality, giving you an opportunity to learn from a wide range of experiences, as well as several opportunities to visit a variety of school settings. Bransgore School Direct has helped me to grow as a teacher and grow in confidence. I am so grateful for the knowledge and skills this course has given me, and I am excited to be making the transition from trainee to NQT'.

 'Bransgore School Direct has not only provided excellent teacher training but has been fully supportive throughout my year as a trainee teacher. The opportunity to visit different school environments, in addition to the fantastic subject knowledge sessions that we have had from subject specialists has enabled me to put the theory I have learnt into practice.  I can thoroughly recommend Bransgore School Direct as it encompasses a high academic content with extensive practical placements, allowing me to be well prepared for my career as a Primary School Teacher'.

Jo Bunnett School Direct Trainee (19-20)


'I have really enjoyed the challenge of learning to teach on the job, through being mentored by highly skilled teachers and through workshops, learning from professionals that specialize in many areas. As trainees, we have been extremely well supported by the staff at Bransgore, whether that is them responding to emails pretty much immediately with advice or helping to prepare us for interviews and proof reading applications. I cannot fault the experience I have had, I am sad to leave but couldn't feel more prepared for my NQT year.'

 Harriet Crossen School Direct Trainee (19-20)


'Throughout my time at Bransgore, it has given me the opportunity to meet and share experiences with various teachers and professionals which have laid the foundations of a support network which I cannot fault. The course provides opportunities and experiences within different schools that has given me the confidence and knowledge to enhance my teaching practice. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working with outstanding teachers and I would highly recommend Bransgore School Direct as it has fully prepared me for my NQT year'.

'I thoroughly enjoyed my teacher training year with South Coast SCITT. The course provided me with a wealth of knowledge and experiences that allowed me to feel well prepared when starting my NQT year. Training to be a teacher can be intensive at times, however the support and guidance on offer from the course tutors was incredible. The tutors themselves shape the course to offer a realistic insight to what teaching is like, preparing trainees with the highest quality teaching and learning opportunities. The strong links with partnership schools means that trainees are provided with well supportive, exceptional school placements and mentors. I am extremely grateful for the opportunities given to me throughout my training year and South Coast SCITT has been an integral part of my teaching career so far'.
